"Our Car Club": A Fast, Safe Playlist for the End of "Car Talk"

By any standard, I am not a car guy. Yet when I finally learned to drive and moved from New York City to Los Angeles, I became addicted to Car Talk, the longstanding National Public Radio show hosted in an utterly unique style by Tom and Ray Magliozzi -- perhaps better known as "Click" and "Clack," or the Tappet Brothers. The Brothers taught me everything I ever really needed to know about cars -- which as a Prius-driver, I confess is actually not a lot. Today, it was announced that Car Talk will stop producing new episodes in September. In thanks for all those years of wise ass car talk, here's my playlist of some of my favorite songs that talk about cars. As always, please add your own favorite car songs for these radio personalities who helped drive National Public Radio to the people.
